About the Course

"In this course, application developers learn how to design and develop cloud-native applications that seamlessly integrate managed services from Google Cloud. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants learn how to apply best practices for application development and use the appropriate Google Cloud storage services for object storage, relational data, caching, and analytics. Completing one version of each lab is required. Each lab is available in Node.js. In most cases, the same labs are also provided in Python or Java. You may complete each lab in whichever language you prefer. This is the first course of the Developing Applications with Google Cloud series. After completing this course, enroll in the Securing and Integrating Components of your Application course."...

t was a good free course. I only realised the second time round the labs are ungraded. So I plan on doing them outside Coursera on Qwiklabs itself so I can earn credits for my lab work.

it's good but it's a bit tedious to replicate everything in node, java and python. Also too much to learn and a lil bit of free roaming on qwiklabs vs railed practices would be awesome.

The course is good overall. I think it would be better if there was an option to choose a single lab in preferred language (JS, Java or Python) instead of doing all 3 each time.

Really helped me lock down my experience and knowledge in google cloud storage options, client libraries and how to use them to achieve a microservice architecture.

I quick introduction to the developing applications using google cloud. Covers important topics. But you surely need to go through more labs to really get started

As it was stated in the beginning of the couse, if I'm not familiar with node.js it would be difficult to understand examples. You are right. Other parts are OK.

Good course. But, mostly the course concentrates on web application. It would be more helpful if you could cover different technologies/domains in each lab.

The Lab session must have had a video in order to track the flow in a better manner. Theory was really helpful. The lab sessions could have been better.

Awesome course but few use cases stated. Also it would be great if quizzes were longer as students like me retain a lot of info from challenging tests.

Great contents! I'd love to have more in depth labs like the one we had for Cloud Datastore and that there's a lab to do the same as in the demo videos

Ample amounts of quizzes and hands-on labs are great. It is unfortunate though that the labs contain minor mistakes.

I think that in one quiz there was a question that was later discussed in the videos. Other than that it was great!

Good overview. Good demos and labs. There could have been a bit more actual application development of own code.

Pretty good course, but I wish there were possibility to practice in labs using other programming languages.

Some topics in the course are too concise; it is essential to read the linked documentation and articles.

for a newbie this was a good course....maybe a little more in depth review of each type of cloud storage

This course is pretty interesting but needs more quizzes and its labs can be more productive on my mind.

The course should review App Engine in more detail. Also use examples of python for lab course.

Great course. Some of the labs needs to be modified with correct dependency versions.

Laboratories were challenging and rewarding (as somebody without a nodejs background)
